Last night was GIRLS NIGHT OUT!
Having friends is good for the soul.
We have 23 kids between us-we don't get out much! We had so much fun!
Some of our kids had a sleep over-while the ladies were out on the town.
We ate dinner at Houlihans and then went to Starbucks. We laughed so much and talked until our throats were sore.
I got home at midnight, which is way past my bedtime. I can't even stay up until midnight on New Years Eve!
The best part was when our friend Dawn stopped in for a quick hug-her husband was just diagnosed with cancer and he has been in the hospital for 10 days. She was on her way back to the hospital to spend the night with him. We all got to give her a hug and maybe for just five minutes she could get her mind off of the trials her family is going through.
To the people at Houlihans who wanted a nice, quiet dinner out.......we are very sorry for our loud laughter and non stop picture taking-we are mothers of many children who rarely get to go out, have a meal where we don't need to cut up someones food, clean up a spill, or get interrupted 52 times. Be thankful we only get around to a girl's night out two times a year!(These are two of my friends: Julia and Kimberly)
Thank you God for friendships that endure over time-sister's in Christ who love each other and make time for each other.
